The Brain Injury Community Has Lost Neuropsychologist Irene Parisi, Ph.D.
I was sadden to learn of the passing of Irene Parisi, Ph.D. Irene was a neuropsychologist who devoted her life to advocating on behalf of those individuals with acquired traumatic brain injury. For many years, she was a leader with the Brain Injury Association of America and Brain Injury Alliance New Jersey (formerly the Brain Injury Association-New Jersey).
She was a graduate of St. John's University, where she received her bachelor's, two master's degrees and her Ph.D. in psychology. She also received a master's in public health from Rutgers University. She was a longtime volunteer and past president of the Brain Injury Alliance of New Jersey. She was the first neuropsychologist to serve on the board of directors and was instrumental in the advancement and growth of the organization through its development. Dr. Parisi's commitment was evident in her more than 25 years of service on the board.
No one was more devoted than she. She will surely be missed.
